    These are the old books that I saved as a child. They have a lot of wear and tare (old and not made by me) and feeling to them. The 1748 one is a description of what land and estates belonged to the Crown and others. The other two are Bibles.
    How should I keep these and should I treat the leather some how?

      Just want to say that the wear and tare is old and wasn´t made by me. I kept this safe and only took them out to "secretly" read in them at night :-)

      Lovely old books.
      I worked in a school library for a time and although our books weren't old they were a precious resource for the school. We did some mending but proper repair of antique books needs a professional and can get expensive.

      This site gives very basic but sensible information on keeping old books:

      Caperkid you're so right :). Have you been here?
    12. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      Thankyou for love.

      No its on my list mabee next time you host the world junior hockey tournament. I've met a lot of Swedes and it sounds like a beautiful country.
    14. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      Thankyou. It is beautiful, most parts of it. Junior hockey, are you quite a young CW member?
    15. Caperkid, 5 years ago
      I'm not sure of the average age for a cw member but I'm 45 collecting since I was a kid. So I'll take that as a complement lol. Love to watch amateur hockey live and would love to see it in another country that has a passion for it.

      Wonderful Roy, you're as young as me, soon to be 45 lol. Great to have interests like CW and sports. I looked into your collection, you have a lot of things I like. Keep collecting! Have a nice day. It's minus 15 celcius here and snow and I'm planning to go out for a walk. See you again soon :)

    20. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 7 months ago
      Lata you are kind, thank you! They are a bit damaged but I think there are something nice about them still. I love that you call them time-travellers. They are.
